Excellent food; one of the top restaurants in Greater Vancouver

An intimate setting; not a huge menus, but everything is cooked to perfection. Recommend the lamb shank, it just falls off the bone. For something different try the twice cooked pork belly!

We had such a lovely supper here for my boyfriend's birthday. The dining room is small and intimate. Very romantic. I ordered the Chef's gin and tonic which came with a bright green ice ball made of cucumber puree. It was a really unique touch. The food was delicious. The restaurant serves thick slices of home made brioche to start.... More

THE most fabulous restaurant in North Burnaby! The menu is limited so they can focus on the items they do offer, and this intensity is incredible! I've been born and raised in Vancouver, and been to many, many restaurants. This one is in the top 1%!! Go! You won't be disappointed by this wonderful food!

This restaurant is in our neighborhood so it has been our go to place for fine dining without the hassle of a drive home. We have always found this to be top notch.

We went to Pear Tree last night with my son and his partner. Three out of four of us had the scallop entree which was devine. The tomato salad was a hit with the fourth member of the group too. We were less than original with our choice of main the majority selecting the pork belly, which was excellent. Their... More

Alway a delight, never disappoints. Small menu but prepared by an amazing award winning chef. Chef features a lot of local delights. Shops for a lot of his own supplies daily. This is a husband ( chef ) and wife ( hottest ) establishment. Great wine and dessert selections as well.

After a time at the Pear Tree Restaurant, I began to feel like the Merovingian from The Matrix as he spoke French, akin to wiping your…well, you know…with silk. I’d like to say “that” word, but most of the review sites discourage it. It felt like the luxury it truly wanted to be. From the outside, The Pear Tree is... More

We have been many times since The Pear Tree opened. Since it opened, the restaurant has undergone renovations and won many well deserved awards. Food quality and service have continued to be excellent. A diner with a big appetite might find portions to be small. Just order more!
